Syrian WMD Threat

It has just been made public that Syria has a nuclear facility very close to Damascus. Knowing Syria's desire for Israel to cease from being a nation makes this development a huge threat to Israel. The fact that this nuclear facility is close to Damascus is significant because of the prophecy that "Damascus will cease from being a city, and it will be a ruinous heap" (Isaiah 17:1, NKJ). Israel's need to decisively take out Syria's nuclear capacity may be the reason Damascus will cease to be the "oldest continuously inhabited city in the world."

This revelation adds weight to the idea that Psalm 83 may describe the next war over Israel. Syria is listed among the nations immediately surrounding Israel that seeks to "cut them off from being a nation" (Psalm 83:4). An under-reported motivation behind many of the Arab people protesting their governments appears to be dissatisfaction that their leaders are not doing enough to oppose Israel. For example, protesters of their government in Tunisia are also now calling for 'Death to the Jews.' Such irrational antisemitism is satanic and shows that God is removing His restraint of evil in this world.

Jesus is coming soon. I would not want to be among those left behind. Now is the time to join with the King of kings and Lord of lords. God has revealed these things to us so that we may warn our family, friends and associates in the hope that they may come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ before it is too late. As God said prior to the last time He poured out His wrath on earth,
"My Spirit shall not strive with man forever" (Genesis 6:3).
